Medium-sized companies and private or institutional investors in the chemical industry face considerably different strategic challenges and problems. In order to solve these problems, comprehensive industry know-how and specialist knowledge are equally important.

For me, the basis of a trusting business relationship is competency, efficiency, reliability, and empathy.

Exploit potentials – drive changes

Added value through tailor-made methods

The demands of the global market, rising prices and margin pressure, new regulations, and increasing digitalization mean that business models and strategies need to be continually adapted and firmly anchored in the company. Many medium-sized enterprises are very operationally oriented and due to organizational structure and staffing levels, there is often a lack of time and possibility for the development of long-term and viable future concepts beyond the day-to-day business.

Thanks to my many years of practical experience I am well versed in the diverse challenges facing the mid-sized sector, with the ability to support founders, managing directors, and shareholders in the achievement of their goals. My main focus is the development and implementation of new corporate strategies, the optimization of processes, the restructuring of measures and change management, and the planning and monitoring of succession regulations.

  • Process Optimization
  • Restructuring & Monitoring of Change Processes
  • Planning of Succession Rules/Transitions
  • Mergers & Acquisitions
  • Sales & Marketing Management

Minimizing risks
optimizing capital investments

With operational evaluations to success

For private and institutional investors it is almost impossible to keep an overview of the chemical industry’s broad landscape. But, the operational assessment of companies, their market segments, their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their business plans, require comprehensive knowledge of the market and the industry. Only on this basis can an adequate assessment of the risks and a realistic assessment of the purchase price be made.

As a senior advisor, I therefore support private and institutional investors, family offices, and corporate finance advisors regarding the acquisition or sale of companies from the chemical industry. In addition to auditing the business through commercial, operational, and technical due diligence, my service offer also includes the development of buy and build and exit strategies. I also take on interim management functions or advisory activities in acquired companies.

Range of services

  • Senior Advisor
  • Advisory Board Activities (Supervisoryboard)
  • Due Diligence
  • Exit-Strategy
  • Buy and Build
  • Interim Management

Analyze efficiently act strategically

Trustworthy collaboration on a level playing field

As a company consultant, I support owners, directors, shareholders and top managers in the chemical industry. With 20 years of experience as a manager and CEO, I am very familiar with the problems and challenges of the most diverse business environments.

My aim is to work with you to develop practical solutions on an equal footing. You can rely on a high degree of operational experience, sound knowledge of all chemical industries’ value added, and a well-developed network within the industry.

Theoretical concepts are just as familiar to me as their practical and pragmatic implementation. My actions in every step are characterized by quality, reliability, efficiency, and empathy. This is the only way to create trustworthy business relationships that will really help you and your company.
